Dog lover and Olympic champion: Laura Trott

So with my human spending her evenings in front of the telly, transfixed by the exploits of the British Olympic track cycling team, I decided to do some background research on my rivals for Gail's attention, multiple gold medallists, Laura Trott and her fiancĂ© Jason Kenney. 

And you know what? I am beginning to think maybe cyclists are not so bad after all.

Look, here are Laura and Jason earlier this year,  taking time out of their strenuous training schedule to visit the Dogs Trust Manchester, a charity caring for homeless pups. 

Awww. You can see Laura's a genuine dog lover. Clutching this adorable fellow, she looks as happy as if she's just won yet another gold medal.

Here's Laura back home with one of her own two Sproodles.

You can feel the love can't you? (I hope Jason's not jealous).

 This is what our world-beating cyclist said to a reporter before she left for Rio. 

I wonder if she's heard about the Pawlympics?


  1. Ya gotta luv a girl who luvs pups!

  2. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
    Yes indeed you can see, feel, smell and taste love in these photos. Sproodle..OMCs I've never seen one and I think I would love to have Sproodle for a sibling. Look at that soft fur. You can tell a lot about a 2 legger when you see how they interact with animals. Laura should have entered the snuggle event in the Pawlympics that last photo is worth 2 golds.
    Hugs madi your bfff

    Great research Bertie lad... I knew Laura and Jason had dogs, didn't know they were sproodles though. Hasn't the cycling been exciting??!!! Never mind the medals, entertainment value has been gold all the way... did I read somewhere a rumour about a BIG train trip??? excitement plus. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. Congrats to Laura ! :o) I agree with you, not all peeps on two wheels are bad... and those who are bad are no sports(wo)men, right?

  5. She must be okay if she loves dogs! I hope she remembers to bring home a few treats along with all those medals.

  6. Yep...a Gold Medal winner at home and in Rio! Maybe she should get an honorary Gold Medal for the Snuggling Event in the Pawlympics!!

  7. She looks like a lovely person

  8. Bertie, you should e-mail her and ask her if her doggies have bagged a munro. Not everyone has. They might all want to mountain bike up a munro. Just a thought.


  9. Laura is a true gold-medalist!

  10. Aww...thats cute. If she hasnt, you better tell her Bertie.
